  1. So it looks as if the daughter of the Crownprince Naruhito and Masako did not participate. I hope she is well.

  4. I agree that Masako looks well and happy. What did cause me to twinge was the comment that "former royals and relatives are invited to the luncheon as well". I do wish they would rethink some of their traditions moving forward. The Imperial family is getting smaller with each generation.

  5. I agree that Masako looks so much more relaxed now. She had to miss out on so much over the years due to what they called an adjustment problem but my personal opinion is that because she did not produce a male heir her life was made to be miserable. I love that she will be Empress now, she deserves to be happy
